Menu Plan Monday, January 14th

It’s Monday again and time to decide what we’ll be cooking this weeek. If you haven’t made your meal plan yet, take a peek at what’s cook at our house this week.

Menu plan with recipe links

When we are in the middle of winter, I love to make soup. There is just something about a nice warm bowl of soup, when it’s cold outside.

This week I have two of our favorite soups on the menu plan. We also have lots of chicken freezer meals in the freezer, so I’ll be preparing a few of them too.

Lunches are simple this week, with leftover most days.

We will be having chicken tenders from the freezer section of the store one day this week. My kids love them, so we have them on occasion. It’s cheaper than eating out.

For breakfasts it will be the usual all week, toast and eggs.

But on the weekend we will be having caramel sticky buns, which if you haven’t tried them they are so good. Also pancakes with homemade maple syrup will be on our weekend breakfast menu.

Here’s what’s cooking at our house this week

  1. Ooh, your soups look so good! I need to put one of them on my menu for next week 🙂

    The baked potato bar is such a good idea, and one that I always forget about doing. I think I’m in the habit of always thinking “meat main dish, starchy side, veggie” when I plan menus, and I need to move away from that.

    Thanks for all the great dinner ideas!
